Nitrile, Vinyl and Latex Disposable Medical Gloves Production. Business Opportunities in Hand Gloves Industry.
The primary purpose of surgical gloves is to act as a protective barrier to prevent the possible transmission of diseases between healthcare professionals and patients during surgical procedures.
Latex gloves are natural, made from the sap of rubber trees called Hevea Brasiliensis (Brazilian Rubber). They are a popular choice of protective glove for medical or industrial use. Latex disposable exam gloves have been the traditional choice for the healthcare industry for more than 100 years. Yet, allergic skin problems can occur following exposure to latex proteins found in latex glove products. Symptoms usually begin within 5 to 60 minutes after contact and may include hives, itching, burning, rhinitis (runny nose), asthma and even anaphylaxis.
Nitrile gloves, made of Carboxylated Butadiene-Acrylonitrile, offer excellent tactile sensitivity and elongation. Improved technology allows thinner Nitrile gloves to be manufactured, without sacrificing the glove’s ability to effective protect against oil-based chemicals. As a snug-fitting glove, it offers better dexterity and a more accurate sense of touch. Nitrile does not contain plasticisers and carries no risk of latex-related sensitivities.
